Treating Male Pattern Baldness
Yes There Are Answers
All you need to do is look at some of Hollywood’s hottest leading men to see that rocking a bald head can work for some guys. Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, Bruce Willis, Jason Stratham are all great examples of when it works.
But we understand that it’s not for everyone!
If you are one of the 70% of men suffering from Male Pattern Baldness, yes there are answers and solutions to get that mane of flowing hair back in its proper place.
Androgenetic Alopecia or common male pattern baldness (MPB) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men. By the age of thirty-five two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss. And by the age of 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.

Some Treatment Options
How Propecia/Finasteride Works:
Finasteride’s success is due to its ability to slow Type II 5-alpha-reductace, the enzyme that converts testosterone into a more potent androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Propecia’s 1 mg dose of finasteride can effectively lower DHT levels by as much as 60% when taken daily. It is DHT that shrinks or miniaturizes the hair follicle, and then leads to baldness. This 60% reduction in DHT has proven to stop the progression of hair loss in 86% of men taking the drug during clinical trials. 65% of trial participants experienced what was considered a substantial increase in hair growth.
At this point, the only truly effective medically proven way to arrest the hair loss process is to lower DHT levels. The American Hair Loss Association recommends finasteride as the first line of attack for all men interested in treating their male pattern baldness.
Our #1 Solution
Hair restoration technology has dramatically improved in the last decade. At Estetigraft, we are at the forefront of the industry standard, using FUE or Follicular Unit Technology. Our doctors can harvest 1 to 4 hairs from permanent donor sites at the back of the head. They then transfer them to the thinning areas of the head, normally the crown and side of the scalp.
The donor hair is transplanted to the balding parts of your scalp. The hair is then inserted into tiny slits that the doctor has created with his surgical tool. The donated hair and hair follicles are called grafts, and each graft contains one or more hair follicles with accompanying hair, tissue, and skin.
Our physician Dr. Greg DeLange approaches this phase of the procedure as an artist might approach painting on a canvas. There is artistry in the technique and it’s important to know and understand your physician’s skill and ability for this phase of the process.
Dr. DeLange and his team have placed more than one million grafts and the success stories are phenomenal.
The average cost for a hair transplant is $6,000 to $15,000 and financing is available. Now, every man can achieve the results that hair restoration offers. Call us or fill out our contact form today, so we can arrange for a free consultation that can set you on a hair restoration journey that will change your life.
